Technical information about this website’s accessibility
The South Yorkshire Police is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.
This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard.
The content that is not accessible is outlined below with details of:
- where it fails the success criteria
- planned dates for when issues will be fixed
Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations
- Some images do not have a text alternative, so people using a screen reader cannot access the information. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1 (non-text content). We plan to add text alternatives for all images by the end of September 2020. When we publish new content we’ll make sure our use of images meets accessibility standards.
- Some PDF’s and other documents are not accessible in a number of ways including missing text alternatives and missing document structure. We plan to have all documents added from September 2020 pass the Tingtun Checker test http://checkers.eiii.eu/en/pdfcheck/ (excluding experimental tests).
Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
PDFs and other documents
Some documents are not accessible in a number of ways including missing text alternatives and missing document structure.
Please Contact Us if you require a document in an alternative format or to report a specific issue.
We do not plan to add captions to live video streams because live video is exempt from meeting the accessibility regulations.
